Sony might be developing a successor to its current tablet line-up. Of course, it is too hush-hush right now and the only link that points to just such a possibility is the model number on the FCC listing, which is remarkably close to what the Tablet S used to be referred to during its FCC days. This is too little information to extrapolate any clues about a future tablet from Sony, though it’s high time for the Japanese company to freshen up its tablet selection, which currently comprises of the Tablet P and Tablet S.
Both are Tegra 2 based devices and run Android 2.2 Froyo. The new tablet will probably have Tegra 3 and Jelly Bean. That said, it’s anybody’s guess right now whether the new tablet will run Android, as there is also an opportunity to launch Windows 8 based tablets as well. Shape and size is another unknown aspect, but since Sony’s present tablet offerings are unique (the Tablet P sports a dual screen display while the Tablet S boasts of a unique wedge shaped design) we can expect something innovative.
